A Baby Shower!

So guess what, I'm back in Iowa! Crazy, I know! What happened is that my husband decided to go on a youth trip to Pennsylvania with the youth group and since I wouldn't be able to travel with Addison, he suggested I ride back to Iowa with my mom so that I wasn't alone for the whole week. That being said, my posts have been a little difficult to write up. Sorry about that!

A little while back, (alright, two years back) I threw a baby shower for one of my good friends and since I'm currently limited to what I have to post about I thought I would share it with you! :)

Here are the cute and simple invitations I created. These were a piece of cake to make and I think I whipped at least 20 of them up in an hour.

Here is the decorated table. The pinata was actually an inside joke among the guests. :)

Here is a detail shot of the diaper cake I made for her. This was my first attempt at a diaper cake and I really loved how it turned out! I think it's great that the diapers were even slightly tinted blue! :)

Here is the onesie bouquet that I made. This was super easy to create! Basically all I did was roll up the onesies and wrap a rubber band around them. I then stuck them in the cute tin bucket (Target dollar spot) and filled in the gaps with silk flowers. So cute!

I made these fun favors for all of the guests. I used a pillow box die and my big shot to create them. I then punched out stars and glued a piece of clear acetate behind the punched area so that you could get a peek at the yummy treats inside!

I decorated with some fun bath toys. They looked cute and the mommy was able to keep them for her sweet little boy!

I discovered through this process that I LOVE to plan parties, especially baby showers. It's so rewarding when everything turns out great and the guests have a great time.

I am linking to these parties!
